Toulon, France, May 2018.
First quality Print of numerical photography. Direct print on Aluminium 3mm, 50x75 cm.
Highly strong, rigid, waterproof and finest no pixelized result.
A masterful backlight in the picturesque old center of the Mediterranean city of Toulon. Many passersby suddenly enter the field together, allowing me a composition all in silhouettes. I really like what this mixture of movement, light and therefore life says in this photo.
This image is issued from my collection « City Instants ».
Humanity has created cities and towns since Antiquity to gather there, to protect themselves, to find there commonly the facilities it needs, to exchange, to have fun there, in short to share there.
My images unearth sharing on every street corner; it is sometimes only about his idea or its evocation, even symbols.
The magic of the photo rests in this ability to freeze for eternity the unique and fleeting moment. So many moments, so many expressions gathered in a single framing. All these trajectories suddenly and for a short time combined. These thousand destinies then compose, through the eyes of the photographer, a great whole that exceeds everyone. Timeless rendering by black & white. This is how my City Instants are born.
